The Linley Group Announces Winners of Annual Analysts’ Choice Awards

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – January 20, 2014 – The Linley Group today announced the winners of its annual Analysts' Choice Awards which recognize the top processor products of 2013 in five categories: PC/server, mobile, embedded, processor IP, and best processor technology.

"Our awards program not only recognizes excellence in processor design and innovation, but also recognizes the products that our analysts believe will have a great market impact,” said Linley Gwennap, founder and principal analyst at The Linley Group.  “We expect these products to significantly improve the design of next-generation systems in their target applications.”

To choose each winner, The Linley Group's team of technology analysts focuses on the merits of the leading products that began shipping (or, in the case of IP, released to RTL) between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2013.  They evaluate the combined impact of power, performance, features and cost of each device for a given end system and market.
